What is Y-90?

Y-90 is a successful treatment for cancer in the liver that targets tumors with radiation without affecting other, healthy parts of the body.

Y-90 refers to the radioactive isotope yttrium90, is used to deliver radiation directly to liver tumors with long, thin tubes called catheters.

While this treatment is not a cure for cancer in the liver, it has been shown to prolong lives for months or even years and can greatly improve quality of life.

Most patients experience few, if any, side effects from Y-90 treatment. Most patients can resume their normal activities within one or two weeks.

Y-90 treatment can be used in combination with surgery, chemotherapy, and immunotherapy. Our Interventional Radiologists will work with your oncologist to determine if you are a candidate for Y-90. Y-90 is not a replacement for the treatments prescribed by your oncologist.

Y-90 is a treatment option that can alleviate symptoms, slow tumor growth, and extend life. If you are a candidate, our physicians will work with your oncologist or your surgeon to add Y90 treatment to your overall treatment plan.
